arrive. all he's folks. brian, first of all, tell us about the supplies, about the crews and the complaints here. it seems like this is a very difficult situation for folks. >> it is very difficult, suzanne. still very difficult. yesterday when we came here, this place was like a war zone. it looked like a shelled out just bombed out neighborhood. scenes like this behind me are all over the place, and make no mistake, it is still a very devastated scene. you do get a sense that all this morning that this neighborhood is coming back to life. people all over the streets. you have a family digging out there that's trying to dig out some of the remnants of the debris from their home. this church has had just to put everything out on the street that was in its basement. they used this stove, this refrigerator, the chairs here to feed people on sunday. that's all shot because the basement was flooded. but there is relief on the ground. city dump trucks over here to my right, your left, our journalist chris turner will show you one down there. thereby tl have been dump trucks, f
at what may be the last final political football in this election. the u.s. labor department released the final monthly jobs report before the election and ali, it was a solid report. >> yeah. 171,000 positions were created in october. we were anticipating 125,000. we were also anticipating, at least the economists we spoke to were experiencing a bump up in the unemployment rate from 7.8% to 7.9%. that is what we saw. the two prior months were revised. that typically happens but they were revised higher. separate survey, as we said, deals with these two numbers. you'll see these headlines, 171,000 jobs created, 7.9% unemployment rate. you'll see them all day and all weekend. both president obama and governor romney promised that more can be done. over the next hour we'll look at whether these are presidential plans or presidential wish list s, christine. >> both candidates will try to spin this number to their advantage, ali. here are the facts, quite frnkly. numbers here show a jobs recovery, 150,000 jobs on average created each month this year. but that's not enough to make everyone
for joining us. i'm carol costello. new death toll and deepening concern from hurricane sandy three days after the storm washed ashore. here is a time lapsed video. that's what you're look iing at right now. watch the right side of your screen as the new york city skyline is plunged into darkness. there it goes. today, nearly 5 million homes and businesses are still without power. the death toll is inching up again. superstorm blamed for 56 deaths in the united states. half the victims just in new york city. the mayor says he expects that number to rise. officials say it is a miracle no one died in the firestorm that burned 111 homes to the ground in queens. likely cause? broken lines of natural gas. dozens of those fires still burn in several states. we'll have more on that in a minute. >>> last of the patients are now evacuated from new york's bellevue hospital. national guard troops lined the stair dels well to usher out more than 700 patients. soldiers call themselves, quote, a human bucket brigade. >>> jersey shore's fragile barrier islands weren't even a speed bump. ferocious winds and s
no home anymore. our joe johns is following us in washington on this story. but what he is following is that new jersey governor chris christy is now saying that people in the affected areas of new jersey, people affected by hurricane sandy can now vote electronically. they can vote by e-mail and they can vote by fax. it is an interesting turn. joe, what are you finding out about this? >> well, it's a very interesting turn, don. as you said, in response to the super storm, the governor has issued a directive. this is for misplaced voters that can submit ballot applications by e-mail or by fax to the county clerk. the clerk sends them a ballot and then they have to return that ballot by about 8:00 p.m. on tuesday. it sounds highly unusual. to some, it may sound off the wall. but the fact of the matter is, in an emergency situation, there is some precedent for it. the united states actually has a program for military and overseas voters to basically do very similar things. so chris christie is taking a page from that pramt aogram and trying to find out how new jersey voters are not dis
cheryl lin says my personal opinion is to stop all campaigning and use the funds to support the victims of hurricane sandy. "cnn newsroom" continues with brooke baldwin. >> thank you. good to be with you on this thursday. important jobs news with just five days to go here before the election. this is a new report, released today which indicates the u.s. employers hiring in bigger numbers than expected. let me be clear. this information, this is not coming from that all-important government jobs report. that doesn't come out until tomorrow. so today's numbers come from adp. they process payroll so let's go straight to alison kosik for this. what more do we know about this report? >> okay. what this report does, brooke, surveys how many jobs that private employers have added so it means all those industries that are outside of the government arena and what it said this time around for october is 158,000 jobs were added. and it came in better than expected, seeing good job gains in services and construction and a second report on jobs showing unemployment claims fell by 9,000 l
with the strongest military the world has ever known. it's time to use the savings from the wars in iraq and afghanistan to pay down our debt and rebuild america. putting hard hats back to work and make our schools state-of-the-art all across this country. hiring our veterans because if you fought for our freedom, you shouldn't have to fight for our job or a roof over your head or the services you've earned when you come home. that's what will keep us strong. that's my commitment to you, and that's what is at stake in this election. yes, change is a future where we reduce our deficits, but we do it in a balanced, responsible way. you know, i have signed $1 trillion worth of spending cuts, got rid of programs that aren't working. i intend to do more, but if we're serious about the deficit, we can't just consult our way to prosperity. by the way, we can afford it. i haven't talked to bruce, but i know you can afford it. i can afford it. mr. romney can afford it. as long as i'm president, i'm not going to kick some poor kids off a head start to give me a tax cut. i'm want going to turn medi
together. he said what unites susbigger than what divides us. >> i believe we can seize this future together because we are not as divided as our politics suggest. we're not as cynical as the pundits believe. we are greater than the sum of our individual ambitions, and we remain more than a collection of red states and blue states. we are and forever will be the united states of america. and together, with your help and god's grace, we will continue our journey forward and remind the world just why it is that we live in the greatest nation on earth. thank you, america. god bless you. god bless these united states. >> in his concession speech, mitt romney also called for both parties to come together. he said the nation is at a critical point. >> and we look to democrats and republicans and government at all levels to put the people before the politics. i believe in america. i believe in the people of ameri america. and i ran for office because i'm concerned about america. this election is over, but our principles endure. i believe that the principles upon which this nation was found
. the u.s. added 171,000 jobs last month. but, you know, i must emphasize this, the unemployment rate inched up .1%. that's 7.9%. the numbers are on your screen. so more jobs than expected, but a higher rate of unemployment. both campaigns have something to chew on right now and chew they did, of course. here is mitt romney. >> he said he was going to lower the unemployment rate, down to 5.2% right now. today we learned that it is actually 7.9% and that's 9 million jobs short of what he promised. unemployment is higher today than when barack obama took office. >> now, as you might expect, the president is zeroing in on the job numbers. here he is, take a listen. >> today our businesses have created nearly 5.5 million new jobs and this morning we learned the companies hired more workers in october than at any time in the last eight months. >> all right, with that said, i want to bring in now our chief business correspondent, mr. ali velshi, he's traveling on the cnn election express and also there is john avalon, cnn contributor. hello, gentlemen. listen, you all heard what the preside
much for joining us. i'm carol costello. "cnn newsroom" continues right now with ashleigh banfield. >>> nice to see you, everyone. it is 11:00 on the east coast. 8:00 on the west coast. and it has come down to this. after thousands of speeches and hundreds of ads, after hundreds of millions of dollars bankrolling months and months of nonstop campaigning, the two main candidates for president in 2012 are tied. see for yourself. the final preelection cnn polling could literally not be closer. president obama supported by 47% of likely voters. mitt romney supported by -- excuse me 49% of likely voters. mitt romney supported by 49% of likely voters. other late polls look very, very similar. one shows them tied at 48%. if you look way down at the bottom there. the others give the president somewhere between a one and three-point edge, depending on which one you look at there. but margin of error sefrg. the race to reach the voters on election eve is just so competitive. mitt romney is racing from florida in the morning to new hampshire tonight with stops in virginia and ohio in between.
charles schumer who was on a tour of staten island, and even for those of us who live in the new york area, the death and the destruction unleashed by sandy and the pain and the fear of the recovery process are really difficult to completely comprehend. take for instance all of the people working behind me who are coming to work and seeing this as they pass by. no gas. people are lining up everywhere with cans and if they are not sitting in their cars for hours to wait to get a drop of gas from a pump that might have power, because many of the fuel pumps don't have power. so there are gas shortages. there are food shortages in a place like new york city where almost every corner, you can get something to eat or you can buy something in a convenient store, at least there's water on somes, but you can barely get a bagel in many places. sandbagging, all of these things are still part of the issue with the flood iing. it is still a problem. batteries, water, matches, candles -- all of these things that you may take for granted, many people in the area surrounding new york can't take a shower.
. so many people, so little power, and so many obstacles. things that used to be so simple. boarding a bus, for instance. hours after this scene in new york city last night, a shoving match borne of frustration and sheer fatigue. i can tell you more than half of the city's subway lines are now back in business post superstorm sandy. and don't strain your eyes on this map, but please try to note the dimmed outlines in lower manhattan on the left-hand side of your screen. those are the lines that are no-go, because of flooding or lack of power or both. and that's a big part of the city. still, a silver lining. bus and subway and commuter train rides are free today. free tomorrow. under new york's transportation emergency decree. travel by car, however, is pretty much a nightmare. and even if you can travel, take a look at these things. cars lined up for gas. filling stations need power too, and in new jersey where these scenes were shot, almost 2 million homes and businesses do not have power. so you're looking at a line that will lead eventually to a bp station in middletown, new jers
the care that they need when they come home. that's my plan to keep us strong. that's my commitment to you. and that's what is at stake in this election. now, change is a future where we reduce our deficit in a way that's balanced and responsible. i signed $1 trillion worth of spending cuts. i intend to do more. i'll work with both parties to streamline agencies and get rid of programs that don't work, but if we're serious about the deficit, we also have to ask the wealthiest americans to go back to the tax rates they paid when bill clinton was in office. because as long as i'm president, i will never turn medicare into a voucher just to pay for another millionaire's tax cuts. i will never allow this nation to be plunged into another battle over health care reform just so insurance companies can jump back into the driver's seat. i will never allow politicians in washington to control health care choices that women should be making for themselves. so, wisconsin, we know what change is. we know what the future requires. we don't need a big government agenda or a small government agend
to columbus, let's go to white house correspondent brianna keilar who is live for us there. it looks like a pretty packed house this afternoon where the president will be speaking. and speaking of that ohio poll that we just showed, slight advantage? how is team obama feeling about those numbers? >> reporter: they're feeling good, brooke. this is a sliver of an advantage, i will tell you, but president obama is enjoying and has consistently for a while the sliver of an advantage here in ohio and in a number of key battleground states. ohio is really the most key battleground state. you look at the picture nationally, and he's not quite performing as well. our latest cnn orc poll of polls nationally has mitt romney tied with president obama, 49-49. but aides to president obama, david axelrod and david gibbs expressing confidence this morning saying that they think he will carry not only the electoral college, but also the popular vote, and, yeah, it is already very noisy here in the nationwide arena as you can tell, brooke. there is actually some areas you can't see, i know, on camera, in
correspondent brianna keilar joining us live from milwaukee, wisconsin. it will be a while before the president speaks there, but you got a crowd and lots of music, nonetheless. >> that's right. and this crowd is eagerly awaiting not only the president but katy perry who will be performing a small concert before president obama. here in wisconsin it's all about for the obama campaign getting people out to vote now on election day. early voting wrapped up in this state yesterday, but here, voters can also register as well as vote on the same day. back in 2008, more than 1 in 10 voters in the badger state did that. that's what the obama campaign is focusing on. when the president talks in the 4:00 p.m. eastern hour, he's going to be trying to counter as he did in ohio, mitt romney's message about being the candidate of real change. he's been saying to his supporters that mitt romney is not about change, and also he's been trying to urge them to be patient, saying that the economic recovery is on the right track. >> after four years as president, you know me. you may not agree with everything deci
